Every Rawland Cycle is instilled with a fighting spirit, as a result of the energy of it’s creator, Sean Virnig. A 1989 diagnosis of the rare Guillain-Barre disease left Sean paralysed for months, the recovery from which was aided by the restorative magic of the bicycle.
Danville, California, is a far stretch from the Scandinavian lands of Sean’s ancestors, but the heritage is there. A decal of Norse knot work is emblazoned on the seat tube, conjuring up ancient mysteries in it’s twists and turns. The rSogn is a versatile all-rounder which can be set up for off-road or tarmac touring. Designed specifically for a 650b wheel, it can accept any tire size without toe overlap. This model found it’s way Down Under, into the hands of Melbourne’s Andrew Blake. A man of refined taste in bicycles, we’ve already featured his Arrow Porteur on Cycle EXIF.
Andrew’s rSogn was deliciously shot by Fame & Spear’s Andy Rogers, and if you’re in Melbourne, head along to the Human Powered Cafe–they’re showing a magnificent exhibition of Andy’s coverage of the recent Dirty Deeds cyclocross series.
